Aegis Capital upgraded Twitter, Inc. (NYSE: TWTR) from Sell to Buy with a price target of $30.00 (from $13.00).

Analyst Victor Anthony is expecting the equity to rise another 17% in 2018 and comments that his upgrade is focused on the following seven points:

  1. 2018 will be an inflection point in O&O advertising growth and 2019 should return to double-digit growth;
  2. stable, improving MAU growth and sustained double-digit growth in DAUs;
  3. year-over-year margin expansion;
  4. GAAP profitability and the potential for S&P 500 inclusion;
  5. an improvement in employee morale;
  6. potential for acquisition now that the business model has improved; and
  7. Facebook’s (FB-$179.37:Buy) decision to emphasize user generated content in the News Feed over public content from businesses, brands, and media could make Twitter a more valuable media resource for video and news content, further increasing its acquisition appeal.
